. supervisor chiu. supervisor chiu: a couple questions to follow-up on involving city college. at the southeast campus you obviously have a lot of activities there related to your department's work. how did you come up with the $228,000 for that lease price? >> i have no idea. historically, the building was really almost taken over by city college. in fact, when we started working with different agencies, they thought city college owned the building and it was their building. i think historically the p.u.c. said, it's your building, you should pay for the upkeep on the building. it's been the last year saying, no, it's not. it's the p.u.c.'s building and we should be making a difference in the community and so we've been taking on a whole different view of what that rate and what the rent and who should pay for security and who should pay for all that. historic cost was really probably the cost of maintenance on the building but i don't know because we're not trying to keep to that. supervisor chiu: ok. and then back to the issue of go solar. we were just handed a document from the of

couple of questions, maybe with president chiu articulating a sense of disconnect about how security guards can provide better security. that is a general sentiment that folks are struggling with. there are two security issues. there is the violent criminal element that can come into the hospital. you mentioned the gang violence that may spill into the hospital or other violent members. and the law enforcement officers absolutely are better equipped to handle the kind of security issue, and they handle that extremely well. the other safety and security issue is the patient who is suffering from acute medical crisis, like i discussed last week, where they do not have control of their functions and mental capacity or are behaving irrationally, may be aggressively, compromising their care, there and safety, and the safety of staff and patients. that is where we have a gap with our current security system. the sheriff's feel legally bound that they cannot intervene in those medical crisis situations with patients, because they're in a law-enforcement and they are bound by regulations tha
